's about education, about research and development, it's about controlling our energy future. all of these are part of the equation. and we can't just do one piece of it, and we can't let that piece prevent us or become a smoke screen for not acting on the others. so that is the challenge. how do you put that puzzle together, move forward in a balanced way, so we're funding those kinds of priorities that we need to grow? >> it's interesting, doris, as you look at the historical sweep as well. here is a very toxic atmosphere in washington. a carryover of, you know, difficult debates. and the president who's popular, has a unified party, but also seems reluctant to go out on a limb on some big areas where he thinks he's not going to get much cooperation from republicans. >> i'm not sure that's true. i think gun control. he came out with sweeping proposals. i mean, that's certainly out on a limb. you're not going to get a lot of support perhaps from republicans. but his idea, i think, is that if you educate the country -- you know, when he talked to you, he mentioned lincoln's quote.
engaged, educators, neighbor groups, public educators and public safety advocates, really as engaged in this issue as the nra, and that's a challenge. >> they might continue to shoot themselves in the foot, pun intended. i want to show a little bit of this. the nra released a web video that gets very personal with the president. take a look. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? >>> to talk about the president's children or any public officers children, who have not by their own choice, but are required to have protection, and to use that to make a political point is irreprehensible high pressure you see that kind of ad and you cringe >> chris christie i think is on the right side of this politically speaking for himself at home in new jersey. why aren't more republicans -- he's the only one i'm aware of who took this position. >> absolutely. chris christie once again -- first of all, he's consistent because he's yelled at people for askin
of education, research and development, innovation energy. there are things we can do about it but we have to do them together as a country. that's our goal. >> i do think it's important to put in context and remember just how dark the days were four years ago and how in the middle of that meltdown, people were thinking about going to caves and getting spam and guns. it was dark. not only the president, but the president working with george w. bush and others really pitched in and had to make very tough decisions and a lot of hard votes that got a lot of people unelected from office to get us through that. >> when we got our first economic briefings, i wanted to get some spam and go into a cave. i know what you're talking about. >> that's why this is such an opportunity, though, for the president right now. the problems we're talking about are structural. they've been there for a long time. this declining middle class has gone on for two decades. it isn't just the recession. that means investing. this is where the problem of the debt comes in. if you're going to get bet
. for instance, yesterday the president talked about education. education polls really well among women. so they know what they're doing when they play the outside game. >> well said. thank you so much. nia-malika henderson, welcome back to "hardball." glenn thrush. beginning to sound like a pack of moon shiners. remember them, chasing the revenuers out of town? you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. i just served my mother-in-law your chicken noodle soup but she loved it so much... i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then. but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she? [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup.
and work around children. everything we do and i have devoted my entire career to is educate children. so the voices of children who are not afraid to speak their minds are really pure, and they need to be listened to by all the people who make these important decisions. no -- there is no amendment that says that children have a right to grow up healthy and not be shot at. but it is just a given. i -- i ended my speech today talking about you can tell the value of a society by how they treat their children. and i think the horror of this will continue every time people sit down and think about it. that -- 20 little 6 and 7-year-olds could be killed like this. >> dr. janet robinson, the children of newtown are lucky to have you running their system. and thank you very much for bringing your voice to washington today and ava's voice, and thank you for joining us tonight. >> thank you, lawrence. >> thank you. >> gun smoke, let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. my hero, the great world war ii leader winston
are reacting to the president's plan. sandy hook's top educator gives an emotional response. that's ahead. >>> i will put everything i've got into this and so will joe. but i tell you, the only way we can change is if the american people demand it. we're going to need voices in those areas and those congressional districts where the tradition of gun ownership is strong to speak up. and to say this is important. >> president obama wants direct action from the american people because it's the only way sensible gun legislation will pass. today, former white house press secretary robert gibbs says the president's campaign organization must be fully activated. >> the president has the most exciting campaign apparatus ever built. it's time to turn that loose. if the nra has a list than obama for america has a bigger list. >> joining us tonight on "the ed show" stephanie cutter, former obama 2012 campaign manager. stephanie, good to have you on the program. that's a heck of a sound byte. i mean, to engage the effort of the obama campaign, is there a plan now that the battle lines have been drawn
, education and programs middle class families depend on. the temporary nature of the increase is somewhat troubling. a white house official told nbc news it's a terrible way to run the country. but the aide gave no indication president obama would veto a temporary extension if this is how congressional republicans want to govern, so be it. they already have an approval rating of, let's see, 14% from the american people. can they do better than that? maybe they just want to see how low it can go. the writing was on the wall yesterday when republican budget chairman paul ryan told members they need to be prepared for a debt ceiling increase. the attitudes from republican leaders are a lot different today. senator jon cornyn of texas wrote an op-ed said it may be necessary to partially shut down the government in order to secure the long-term fiscal well-being of the country. now cornyn tells the chronicle editorial board we will raise the debt ceiling. we are not going to default on our ded debt. two years ago, they were gloating over their debt ceiling hostage strategy. >> no president in
building highways today. he talked about reviving education for grade school and for university. he talked about climate change. now, he's talked about all of these things before. so none of this comes as a surprise. but he also talked about the need to organize. that citizens involved, and it's not a coincidence that he's making those points to progressives and others today, just a couple days after he has transformed his political presidential campaign into an organizing outfit now called organizing for action. so i think he is aiming for those far away fences for things you would like to see him do, chris, but it's going to happen. not just if he wants to do it, but if he can mobilize enough political support to try to get over some of that republican obstructionism. >> joan, the same question. did you see the beef today? terms of substantive accomplishments worthy of a second term? >> i did, chris. it was a soaring speech. it was an inspiring speech. but it was also as david said practical nuts and bolts, talking about the highway system, talking about we don't want people standing in
on their threat to take the country into default? i mean, the president spent a hot of time today educating the american people and cutting to the chase and being brilliant on the basics about what the ramifications would be. your thoughts. >> my thought is that they seem to be this time headed for a real trauma. i voted no on the last bailout a couple of weeks ago because i knew that the real fight was going to come on this debt ceiling. and they think that this is the way. now, it's like handing the keys to a john deere tractor to a 6-year-old and let him try and drive it. these guys, they have no idea what they're doing to the economy. and they will wreck it because they think that that way they'll get their way on some other things. it is simply -- you can't -- if the facts made any difference, the president would win the day totally. but the facts don't -- it doesn't make them move at all. they simply believe that if they are tough enough and bring enough chaos, they will get what they want. and they don't understand what they're asking for. it is really scary to me. >> well, it's scar
a ban is white men with no college education. a college educated men and women, as well as nonwhites and young people, they all support a ban. america is dividing as the demographics in this country shift. it's time for the silent majority in this country to be heard. this civil war rhetoric needs to stop before it turns to be even more dangerous. i am a life-long hunter. now, we all give our resume when we start talking about guns. and this is one of the things that does bother me. why do we do that? well, we do that because we want to qualify that hey, i'm not a nut, and i believe in the second amendment. but i really do think we can have some sensible gun laws in this country. attitude, society changes. attitudes in society change over the years. we don't stay the same on a lot of issues. we move forward. now, i'm not concerned that my guns are going to be taken away. and i would venture to say that of all the conservative hosts that you just saw there, i have probably shot more deer and pheasants than any of those suckers. this is not about tyranny. this is not about manhood in a
's a hard story to cover. the president has to be an educate on climate issue. by giving it the form, not a paragraph, he's gone a long way to start the second term discussion on climate we need. >> we can't judge how historians are going to see this. i suspect on many issues, they'll see it as forward thinking. that doesn't take away from the fact it probably will be seen as the next couple years as a partisan speech. i think they best test how partisan the speech is, is not what republicans say on it, what democrats running for re-election on the senate two years from now say on the speech and what democrats say in swing districts about the speech. i don't know you're going to get a lot of these democrats running in conservative states where the president got below 45%, and there are quite a few, in 2014, are going to be talking about gay rights, climate change and gun control. rober robert. >> look. every district is unique and different, as you well know and as we know, as we looking through the map. i think the speech, talking, as doug said about seneca falls and stonewall and s
and devoted educators who have so much left to give. >> we all knew that the president would be making proposals today about reform. about guns and gun legislation included in that reform. we did not know that what he was going to propose would be something this big. corey booker joins us next. [ nyquil bottle ] you know i relieve coughs, sneezing, fevers... [ tylenol bottle ] me too! and nasal congestion. [ tissue box ] he said nasal congestion. yeah...i heard him. [ female announcer ] tylenol® cold multi-symptom nighttime relieves nasal congestion. nyquil® cold and flu doesn't. >>> the vast majority of americans support common sense gun regulations. and, clearly, the white house was listening. on the legislative side, we asked for background checks for all gun sales, and that is in the president's plan. we asked for restrictions on military-style, semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines, and that's there as well. we asked for tougher penalties for gun traffickers. it's in there. on the executive side, we urged him to appoint an atf director, increased prosecutions for tho
dangers of military action against iran. i think that's where we are now. >> we're now in a cambodian re-education camp. >> i'm not sure i'd use that analogy, but i think they're trying to basically make hagel be in line with the absolute conventional wisdom in congress, which is that you say military action is on the table, which is okay, but you don't say that military action could have very dangerous consequences. >> yeah. let me go to joan on this. joan, and i watched this group. we're both doves. and i think i just am very skeptical of any wars, these bite-sized wars. what we confront with iran will be hardly bite-sized. not a neat war where we do the job and live with it. in saying these are dangerous propositions, it seems to me evidence of sanity. >> it's absolutely sanity. he's also called the defense budget bloated. they'll probably get him to walk that back even though it's true. he called for an earlier exit from afghanistan than perhaps the president would have backed at the time that he said it. although things have changed since hagel said it. so it's a terrifically important piece
's very effective political infrastructure, became organizing for action, a 501 c-4 education organization, ostensibly, and they're going to be helping drive the obama agenda out there on a very grass roots level much like they did with the campaign. >> harris: and why does that matter? >> it matters because i think you know, listen, four years ago, president stood on the west end of the capitol and said he would set out remaking america, as if america needed remaking and started pushing, a political agenda. and inencumbered i think he's going to be aggressive. >> harris: we've heard about the agenda the next four years, hearing things like reduction in our debt, so on, so forth. a couple of things we haven't heard, creation of jockbs and what's happening in north africa and foreign policy, at least not yet. where should they make a move? >> if the president is true to his word, he needs to do something about the economy, about job creation. there are more unemployed or underemployed people in this country today than there were when the president first took office. we've seen a 33% increas
come with a dream of living a better life than their children. getting an education, working hard. in many cases starting up their businesses and living the american dream and we ought to find a way to make that more possible. now, that also means we live in a society of rules and so we need to abide by the laws that i think there are practical ways to abide by those lawses. and any ethnic where they come from, should live the american dreams and what it stands for. >> greta: what do you do about those illegally here in this country? have you thought about that? that's one of the thornier issues. >> well, clearly there's got to be a well thought-out process in doing this, a balance between respect for the law and all the talk about securing the border, which is important, is that we've got a mess when it comes to the federal agency that controls immigration. we've got people who want to come in and work hard and live the american dream. i don't care if they come from mexico, canada, europe, africa, they want to come here and add value, work hard and live the american dream. that's
first six months of 1965, medicare, education, voting rights, all the things that we think of really as the great society didn't happen across four years, really just in that first half of one year. the fact that johnson was asking for all those big things together really helped. >> the end of the iraq war was not marked as a massive occasion in this country when it happened. there was some primetime news programs that didn't cover it the day that it happened, the day that was the end of the war. but people, when you ask them broadly in the country, end up ranking ending the war as president obama's greatest single accomplishment in his first four years. what explains the primacy of that in memory, even as it was buried in the news as we went through it? >> well, go back to the democratic primaries of 2008. what was the biggest issue? barack obama probably became the nominee largely because he was against the war at the beginning. hillary clinton was for it. so people obviously noticed the absence of that. but even more than that, i'm sure you're wiser than i was. but four years ago
product gear and programming a and education. and our focus is on improving human movement. >> wasn't this created by someone who said you could take it and do it anywhere? >> you can do it anywhere. it was created by a navy s.e.a.l. it's perfect for new york, small spaces. >> what we're going to do first. go ahead and put your right into the left. s sara is a pro. she's been on the suspension trainer before. hands on her shoulders. going to lift yo you are hips. do a couple of remembers of that. then just rest on your knees. lift your lips up. it's core strength all the time. that was great. >> you could hang this at home, eigh right? >> yeah. the new home kit comes with down loadable workouts. it's like having a private trainer when you're at the park, at your house. >> you can make modifications to make it easier or? >> it's for all levels. you're going to come down into a press, keeping your plank, lift your hips, tuck your legs in, good work. >> that's going to leave a mark. >> it's total body. >> thank you so much. that was an awesome workout. >> going to kathy. >> number thre
was studying to build a career just like mom. >> i absolutely couldn't wait to get a degree in education and start teaching. >> when sara came to you and said, i want to be a teacher -- >> i was thrilled. when your child wants to follow in your good footsteps, you're thrilled. >> reporter: and right out of college, sara scored her dream job, teaching english here at dixie heights high in kentucky. she was just 23. >> i wanted those kids to love school, because school should be a good experience. >> reporter: but sara was a different kind of teacher. it wasn't just her age or personality. it was that flashy weekend job. >> it made me more marketable from the boys' standpoint because on monday they could come in and talk about the game, because i was there. >> reporter: but the girls? >> the girls were very jealous if any of their boyfriends were in my class. >> hard to ignore the obvious. a lot of people see the skimpy outfits, the sexy poses and a lot of people see the cheerleaders as sex objects. as a mom, does that bother you? >> i just really never thought of it that way. she's my kid
are declining education opportunities and a higher cost of living in california. fewer people are coming to the state, including undocumented workers. myers says the state needs all of them, including the dream act students. >> now they're going to say this. because without the immigrant kids, we would be in a deep hole. >> reporter: a worst case scenario, an eroding tax base. the government demanding more from lower income people. and the future of this baby, a potential revolt. >> this boat won't float if that continues. >> reporter: miriam hernandez, abc news, eyewitness news. >> that's pretty fascinating. you wouldn't think that. i mean, a lot of countries have problems with not having enough babies, but you wouldn't think the state of california. >> in 2011, the u.s. had 63 births per 1,000 women. compare that to the baby boom generation, 122 births of women of child-bearing ages, 15 to 44. >> are you going to do your part? you've got two. >> i might. i've always wanted four. >> you better get going. >> my husband counts so i have three. >>> it's one of the most heroic jobs in the w
good. but he has to get everybody working again. it means fix the economy. it means fix the education. so we're bringing kids along that have the skills for 21st century america. his focus has to be on the economy. on the need to reduce unemployment. and frankly, i hope he can, through his own example, restore a sense of civility in the country. >> every president learns a lot. is scarred by the office. also made more wise by the office. what is the one thing you hope president obama has learned over the last four years? >> i hope he's learned that you know, no one part of the government, really, gets it all done. and so, he's got to do a better job of reaching out to members of congress, across both -- across the aisle, to the republicans. and the republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. why aren't republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and these other things? they're silent. they need to speak out. this is the kind of intolerance i've been talking about, where these idiot presentations continue to be made. and you don't see th
paying lots of taxes relative to their income, and they need help. we need more education work being done in this country. we need a solid immigration policy. we have to look at climate change. there are a lot of things that the american people are expecting, and the republican party, as they get ready for the next election, really has to focus on some of these issues and not ignore them. >> chris, what's sad to me about that is that by virtue of mentioning the phrase climate change, it's almost like colin powell has kicked himself out of the republican party. this party used to play ball on that issue. now they're denying the actual science behind it. they have swung so far right, and my question after all of this, after that interview which was incendiary and was very much a line in the sand for the gop -- >> it's history making. >> -- when will the republican party admit they have a problem? because every time something like this happens, there is a doubling down, there is a defense, there is an attack on the messenger. there is a problem here. the party is in crisis, and someone has g
't got a clue and they actually support something they think is law. so the education part of it is one aspect of it. but you've also got the sheer power, the emotion of the 9/11 families style approach where you've got the sandy hook families coming in, it's very hard to oppose -- it's not about the president. you've got -- it's not even about bloomberg's money that's going to go into the advertising. the emotional force of the sandy hook families is just like it was with the 9/11 families. and republicans have got to face up to that. frankly, democrats have to face up and grow a spine here as well. they have run away from the gun debate for 20 years or so because it's helped them get into power in some states. >> by the way, there are 30 to 40 democrats in the house, too, will also fight any reasonable, rational reforms. you know, one of the moments yesterday, richard, that i thought was really telling, i thought one of the president's strongest moments is when he said if you have a congressman or congresswoman that supports assault weapons, ask them why. see, that's where the extremi
malkin, she thinks that's child abuse. some might call it education. some might call it america. here's how the drudge report rewarded the president of the united states for allowing children to share their voices and opinions. a picture of stalin with a small child. and if you had the bad sense to click onto the next page, oh, you were treated to this charming picture of adolf hitler with a little girl. on fox news the far right was just as unhinged. >> i consider it a form of child abuse and political malpractice. >> so conservatives say the president is an un-american tyrannical child abuser. is he really this bad? they must have a plan to stop him. >> after listening to the 23 executive actions the president announced today my next guest has decided to stand up to king obama and in a hannity exclusive senator rand paul is unveiling new legislation to stop obama's assault on your second amendment rights. >> in this bill we will nullify anything the president does that smacks of legislation. and there are several of the executive orders that appear as if he's writing new law. that c
